scam75Yes, I believe they are original, I certainly haven't had them done. I'm intending to have them replaced soon. Nylon replacements I think my mechanic mate said, sure he said £500 all in parts and labour to replace them. Is that reasonable? Stuart
scam75Thanks guys! Provisional plan made for a wee trip to Newcastle to mirror what Mr 16v turbo has done on his car, that ought to be good enough for me and more cost effective than my £500 quote. Hopefully don't head home with a requirement for 8 extra valves and 500 more cc's in my head after a blast in the rocket ship.................that would be just silly! Cheers Stuart
scam75A further positive update on this, approaching 4k miles now and all is well. Engine bay continues to be a leak free environment, no evident oil usage with dip stick still showing max. Happy days!
scam75Sounds a good job Thom, well done! Pete, yeah I haven't been going mad with boost, the odd burst here and there. The turbo was rebuilt a while ago and looked perfect when it was all apart. It's still an old school turbo albeit with a larger hotside if I recall correctly............ Stuart
